    Dehydration and hunger reduces focus. This is OP's choice, sacrifice higher grades, or fast the whole month.

    If you feel like you need to eat to improve your concentration then do it. Don't let anyone make you feel bad for it, your exams are more important for your future.

    Well am not having GCSEs but I have through similar worse exams while fasting.
    From what I know, it helps because I don’t waste time to go eat , and my concentration is always high. For those reasons whenever I have exams I fast not just religiously but for more focus and other benefits,
    so I think u should fast, also God will be happy.

    I think it depends on how long your body has adapted, depending on your age and for how many years you have done it.
    The first days are probably gonna be hard( they always are) but with in a week your body will.

    But if u really can’t, u can maybe fall out.

    Fast because at the end of the day you will be accounted for your deeds, not your gcse grades. I revised for Urdu gcse in year 9 whilst fasting and I got an A, so there’s no excuse.

    It's unlawful to not fast if you don't have a legitimate circumstance i.e. illness. In my experience, it was hard fasting whilst doing A levels- i had to wake up 5am for the morning prayer, go to sleep at 10pm and then wake up again to have a quick snack for the following fasting day.

    These struggles will be recognised and you will be redeemed for your actions- spiritually, it can help your results.
